I know many of you are experiencing record-breaking hot weather right now and colder temperatures seem a dream. Up here on the mountain though the temperatures are beginning to feel a bit nippy. We are getting emails reminding us that school is starting up again in one short month. Augh! Summer always zips by so quickly.
Of course for those of you that are super organized it’s time to think about projects for your holiday gift giving. I’ll be releasing 5 patterns over the next week that are wonderful gift items that don’t take a lot of yarn or time to work up.
Anna Moebius Cowl
My crochet friend V was looking for quick projects for last-minute gifts for Christmas this past November. So I created this design. The cowl is worked off a moebius strip foundation with one ball of chunky size yarn and a large hook so you can make one in an evening. I named this design after my friend’s grand-daughter because she really loved the cowl and liked to wear ones with a shorter foundation as an ear-warmer.
My sample is worked using one ball of Plymouth Yarns “Gina Chunky” with a size L /8mm hook. The 100% wool of this yarn means you get a wonderfully warm cowl (or with a shorter foundation, ear-warmer), and the color changes in “Gina” make the shells in the stitch pattern stand out individually. Or go with a solid color yarn for a subtle textured look to your cowl.
This pattern is available in my Ravelry Shop for $3.99 BUY NOW
I’m heading to San Diego for the Knit and Crochet Show this coming Tuesday, but I will have more patterns posting while I am on my trip. Be sure to check back.

Goodness! I didn’t know there was a yarn out there with my name on
it LITERALLY! Very nice pattern. Love your shell stitch designs.

LOL, I know who you are Gina. And I thought of you (and Borg Gina) when I was typing that yarn name in. That yarn comes in a rainbow of color choices and it’s available in the Chunky weight I used for this design as well as a worsted weight.
Oh, I had forgotten about “Borg Gina”. That was a hoot!
How could you forget Borg Gina. LOL
Actually I am much relieved. Google updated the navigation program and now she doesn’t sound like the borg anymore. Was kinda freaking me out.
